Chamisa Ready To Negotiate With Khupe

Addressing journalists in Harare soon after an MDC-T standing committee meeting which the party’s vice president Thokozani Khupe and her allies boycotted, acting president Nelson Chamisa revealed that they have started the process of bringing Khupe to the negotiating table, to resolve their leadership wrangle and agree on the founding leader Morgan Tsvangirai’s successor.

Although he did not reveal the mediation process, Chamisa said Khupe remains a leader in the party. Said Chamisa:

Dr Khupe is a leader of this party, we are engaging her and there are processes we have deployed to make sure that we find each other. You may not see her now, but you must know that she is with us and there is a process that I have instructed and leadership requested me to kick-start that one so that we find each other. We are not going to go public about our internal processes, transparency is not nakedness.

We want to move away from internal focus to external focus. We don’t want to internally focus on ourselves. You know that the misfortune of the departure of our giant, the icon, the founding father of democracy in Zimbabwe (Tsvangirai) is not an easy element and we are in a transition as a party and that transition is very smooth.

However in an interview with NewsDay, Khupe’s spokesperson Witness Dube, vowed that her boss would not set foot at the party’s Harvest House headquarters for the proposed negotiations, unless her security was guaranteed.
